The medical board concluded that Diego Armando Maradona agonized 12 hours before his death, that he could have had “more chances of survival” if he had been admitted to a medical center, than the treating medical team was “inadequate, deficient and reckless” and that death must have been represented and he was “indifferent” to that question.
This is clear from the 13 “medical legal conclusions” of the report, a letter of 70 pages prepared by the official experts who for two months analyzed the circumstances of the death of the former soccer player and that on Monday will be formally incorporated into the file.
In point 1 the following is read: “Although it is counterfactual to affirm that Maradona would not have died if he had been properly hospitalized, taking into account the picture documented in the days prior to his death, in a multipurpose health center receiving care according to good medical practices, we agree that he would have had a better chance of survival ”.
The letter also states that “Maradona began to die at least 12 hours before 12:30 on November 25 last.” It points out that the former world champion “had unmistakable signs of a prolonged agonizing period, so we conclude that the patient was not properly controlled from 0.30 am on the day of his death “.
The file has seven defendants for the death of Maradona, which occurred on November 25, 2020 in the private neighborhood of San Andrés, in the Tigre district. They are the neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque, the psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov, the psychologist Carlos Díaz, the nurse Dahiana Gisela Madrid, the nurse Ricardo Almirón, the coordinating physician Nancy Forlini and the coordinator of the nurses, Mariano Perroni.
The psychiatrist looks bad in this paragraph: “Having dispensed with the therapeutic accompaniments, they were supposedly due to a wish of the patient, who was not in full use of his mental faculties including deciding behaviors on their health care, but who executes this motion is Dr. Cosachov, with which it is evident that at no time were limits placed on the demands of the patient whom they had to contain, accompany and watch over your complete well-being ”.
The medical board also pointed out that “according to the psychiatric therapeutic drug scheme” that was indicated to Maradona, “The medication provided potentiated the effect of alcohol because it was contraindicated with a concomitant alcohol intake”.
In another passage it is read that “a patient like Diego Maradona, with a previous history of congestive heart failure and dilated cardiomyopathy with altered systolic function and associated with cocaine and alcohol consumption, must undergo periodic cardiological controls and studies appropriate to the requirements of specialty. “He points out that,” in that particular period he should have been evaluated in depth of his cardiovascular risk and possible heart disease “; and that” he should never have suspended vasodilators, antihypertensive medications, and the treatment of heart failure, even in previous periods of stability ”.
The medical board began its work on March 8 at the Buenos Aires Scientific Police Superintendency in La Plata and tried to determine the causes of Maradona’s death. The world champion in Mexico 86 was 60 years old and had undergone surgery for a subdural hematoma on November 3. After his hospitalization, Luque coordinated a post-operative out of the clinic. The star was taken to Tigre’s house where he died after three weeks.
Since Maradona’s death they joined Critical voices for the conditions in which the 10th spent his last days of life and if the handling of the environment worsened his health to the point of leading him to death. The report that joins the cause sheds a little more light on the final hours of one of the great athletes in Argentine history.
